Energy union - 8th parliamentary term
Event date: 31/10/2017
A European Energy Union will ensure that Europe has secure, affordable and climate-friendly energy.
Wiser energy use while fighting climate change is both a spur for new jobs and growth and an investment in Europe's future.
The state of the Energy Union shows progress made since the Energy Union Framework Strategy was adopted to bring about the transition to a low-carbon, secure and competitive economy.
The “Clean Energy for all Europeans” package consists of several legislative proposals and three communications on the energy market, energy efficiency, renewables, eco-design and governance of the Energy Union.
Significant investment is needed in the energy sector to help the EU achieve its ambitious climate change targets, which were agreed as part of the Paris Agreement. The Clean Energy for all Europeans package aims to set the legal framework to make this transformation possible. Live replay will be available for this event
In the annual “State of the Energy Union” debate, Commission Vice- President Maroš Šefčovič presents progress made and next steps to complete the European Energy Union. Energy efficiency, safe supply, smart and competitive pricing for industry and citizens as well as climate commitments will be at the heart of the debate.
